Few weeks ago, I asked the same. Only one person posted a positive reply.
Since then I tried to install vmware-server on domU and dom0, but I failed.

Vmware kernel modules compile succesfully on dom0, but loading vmmon.ko failes due to a slight difference in kernel versions (I don't know why that happens since it's the kernel source for the dom0 kernel).

I'll try few times more and will report if I succeed.

Best regards,

Hi all,

  I need to deploy several virtual machines (windows and RHEL) on my
laptop to do some demostrations to our customers. At this moment, my
laptop is a RHEL 4 ES U1 with xen enabled kernel 3.0.2 downloaded from
xensource.com (rpm packages) on a Pentium M 2GHz. My idea is to install
VMWare Server on this laptop on dom0 (not on any virtual machine) using
xen kernel sources from rpm packages. is this possible???

Many thanks
